Why Do People Collect Things?
By Patricia Twitchell
Have you ever wondered what motivates someone to begin a collection of any type? Being the owner/operator of Just Bears and Stuff gift shop, I have pondered that question on more than one occasion. My customer base is full of loyal folks who are more committed to the art of collecting teddy bears.
I have customers from all walks of life - from stay at home moms to busy professionals. Each has their own reasons as to why they began their collection. Following are some of the primary reasons people have told me they buy, collect and cherish their teddy bears.
1. It satisfies the soul.
2. They have a friend or family member who encouraged them.
3. They like the feeling teddy bears give them.
4. Teddy bears are great conversation pieces.
5. Most everyone loves a cuddly bear.
6. Investment purposes.
7. Teddy bears make great listeners.
8. It's Fun!
Whatever the reason, teddy bear collectors are here to stay. Chances are either you, or someone you know, has a passion for the cute little creatures that bring so much joy to the lives of many.
The next time you wonder why people collect things, ask yourself if there has ever been anything you had an affection for and just had to have one more!
